Hopefully the userland can figure out a value from the introspection. If the knob exposes a range with two examples, a “powersave” value and a “balanced” value, the userland can pick the powersave value for powersave and more energy-efficient modes, and the balanced value for balanced and more performance-oriented modes. Generally: pick the example nearest the desired mode.

If you have a more advanced user willing to figure things out, you can let them view the range, pick values and submit a patch, but that doesn't need to be the default user experience.
